Description of the Wells vacation apartment rental
This is a two room plus full bath walk-up in a private home on 2.5 acres of woods. The studio kitchenette has a futon that makes into a double bed and a recliner plus a small flat screen TV and a closet. The bathroom is quite lovely and has a linen closet. Two adult guests can enjoy the kingsize bed in the MBR (though these may be split apart into two single beds), which has a large flat screen TV with free streaming video, a dining table, and a large walk-in closet. Both rooms have a ceiling fan and window air conditioner as needed plus a 10 cu ft frig and all the appliances needed are in the kitchenette. The sink is large. If you have more than four, such as children, owner can supply a queen-size airbed.
Many locals call autumn in southern York county their favorite time of year. It's a quiet season when golden colors reflect in the clear ponds and lakes, the vibrant leaves on the trees a harbinger of winter's white that will follow.Maybe it's the cycle of the trees, the growing crisp coolness and stillness of the mornings that make autumn a favorite time to visit Wells.But wait! Summer's not over yet. Wherever you are, pause for a moment and prioritize your play time. York County Coast still has plenty to offer for that last best taste of summer. Drink it in!
Guests may want to try the great local restaurants, especially for anything lobster!
This can be rented for a long weekend (minimum of 3 nights) for $395, weekly for $795, or monthly for $1495. The weekly and monthly rentals may be cleaned for you for $45 fee or you may choose to clean them yourselves. Laundry may be done by the owner for $5/load including hypersensitive detergent and clothes softener and folding. There is an above ground pool (until mid September) for when you do not want to fight the crowds at the beach. The back yard has an extra large picnic table, a Weber grill, and a natural stone fire pit with plenty of wood to light and enjoy a bug free evening or warm you up as the evenings get cooler.
The front yard is for the owner's organic vegetable garden and ripe vegetables and herbs may be purchased as well.
Area Information
This is the quiet part of Wells a couple of miles away from the beach in the woods, but an easy bike ride or drive to get to the beach on off hours if you're like the owner and don't like crowds.
It's easy to learn your way around from here and find lovely places to ride bikes or go for hikes or just kick back here by the pool or the firepit in the back yard.
There is plenty of room to park and go in your own entrance in the front of the house.
Wells is right next to Ogunquit and only a few miles to York so there are many lovely beaches, lighthouses, and other places, including great restaurants, and scenes to enjoy.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
Fantastic gourmet restaurants abound in southern York along the coast from York itself up to Kennebunkport. Or you can get takeout for what you'd like to eat in your own studio BR. The pool onsite is an above ground 15' x 4' salt water treated pool. Any children must be supervised by their parent(s). A fire in the evening is relaxing in the natural granite fire pit in the back yard. This is a real "get away from it all" type of rental.
Owner Supplied Testimonials

From Ginger in New Jersey: Spent 10 days in early July as a "guest" of Anna in her beautiful vacation apartment and property. She took me to an outside by the sea dance and sat on the porch in the morning while I had my coffee. We made dinner together in her kitchen one night and ate at the picnic table while a fire kept the bugs away. It's a beautiful area from Kennebunk to Portsmouth and this is right in between. The beaches there are mixed. The best with soft sand and good waves is Drakes Island just at the northeast end of Wells. I would recommend this as a GREAT deal and the hostess as a wonderful helpful person.

From Carli, the traveling nurse from Kentucky: Anna is a kind, thoughtful, helpful hardworking Swedish woman who guarded my rest and sleep as I filled in for nurses on vacation at nearby York Hospital. She took me to have my very first lobsters at Billy's and took me to listen to a fantastic band. We also made one dinner in her kitchen and sat on the breezeway porch to chat and laugh and enjoy. The price was so reasonable and quiet for me to get enough sleep as my shifts had to change according to what the hospital needed. Oh, I almost forgot, Anna taught me how to boogie board!

From Steve: I stayed for two weeks at this place and wanted to help Anna work in her garden and mow and take care of the it all. She really makes sure it looks beautiful and peaceful and is very protective of guests. She also taught me the back ways to navigate south as it gets very crowded from the end of June through Labor Day. You couldn't find a better place at a better rate with a better host than here.
